BRENDA HARRALSON
Chief Products Officer

As a Chief Products Officer at Rialto Academy, Brenda drives the complete vision and execution of Rialto Academy’s digital training and performance improvement solutions which deliver positive results for our clients.

She is also a licensed REALTOR® with the Murphey Team at the Austin SW Market Center. Brenda helps first-time homebuyers in the Austin area on their journey to find the special home that’s right for them. More than just a transaction-based real estate agent, she is a true advocate for her clients before, during, and beyond the sale. She sometimes even plays the role of marriage counselor--whatever it takes to help her clients find the best home for their family’s future.

Brenda began her career in 1993 with Addressing Your Needs — an Austin-based database marketing firm — where she managed a team of database specialists and designed, developed, and implemented employee and manager training solutions while pursuing a Master of Education degree from the University of Texas. This graduate program, uniquely focused on adult education and human and organizational learning, is where Brenda discovered a way to blend her passions for simplifying work with technology and helping people identify and achieve their performance goals.

Brenda gained unparalleled experience in organizational development as well as how to effectively blend technology with training at Spiegel Catalog, DigitalGlobe (literally working with rocket scientists!), and most recently with Keller Williams Realty International before joining Rialto Academy in 2018.

When Brenda is not helping clients, she can be found spending time with her precious family and friends, enjoying all that the Austin area has to offer!
